Microservices are a type of software architecture where large applications are made up
of small, self-contained units working together through APIs that are not dependent
on a specific language. Each service has a limited scope, concentrates on a particular
task and is highly independent. This setup allows IT managers and developers to build
systems in a modular way. In his book, “Building Microservices,” Sam Newman said
microservices are small, focused components built to do a single thing very well.

Learn how a security rationalization process helps CISOs optimize your security infrastructure while improving the bottom line. Development velocity is accelerating as enterprises adopt DevOps methodologies, yet security is still not integrated into the coding and deployment processes. Security teams are falling further behind as their manual processes and controls can’t scale at the same rate as development. This paper discusses:
The impact the current approach to application security has on business
How shifting security left in the application development process, seamlessly integrating it “early and often,” can accelerate innovation
Questions the Board and C-suite are now asking about security: are you prepared?
Read this paper to learn how, by shifting security left in the development process, it’s now no longer an obstacle to velocity, innovation and competitiveness. Instead, it’s an asset.

We’re living through a time where people,
organizations and societies not only rely but thrive
upon secure, simple and fast access to information.
From small businesses, startups, enterprises and
global conglomerates across all verticals; to local, state
and federal governments; to educational institutions
and nonprofits, we are continuously investing in
our employees, devices, applications, networks and
infrastructure that enable us to drive our collective
Ten years ago, business and technology leaders
catalyzed a cloud app revolution that has changed the
way organizations manage IT. However, through this
transformative shift, the core requirements of IT remain
the same. Technology leaders are responsible for
ensuring that 1) information assets remain confidential
and protected, 2) information systems are available
and operational, and 3) people are empowered and
productive with the apps and information they need.
IAM is a technology and security discipline
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.

Banks today are continuously challenged to meet rigorous regulatory
requirements. They must implement strict governance programs that
enable them to comply with a wide variety of regulations stemming
from the financial crisis that began in 2007, including the DoddFrank
Act, Basel Committee on Banking Supervision regulations, the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Revised Payment
Services Directive (PSD2) and the revised Markets in Financial
Instruments Directive (MiFID2).
Many of these new regulations are spurring banks to rethink how data
from across the enterprise flows into the aggregated risk and capital
reports required by regulatory agencies. Data must be complete,
correct and consistent to maintain confidence in risk reports, capital
reports and analytical analyses. At the same time, banks need ways to
monetize, grant access to and generate insight from data

SaaS ist eine Chance für ISVs, ihr Geschäft grundlegend zu verändern: Sie können so zusätzlichen Mehrwert für Kunden bieten, Software an ein breiteres Spektrum von Kunden verkaufen und interne Abläufe optimieren. Der Markt für Software passt sich schnell der Nachfrage nach dieser Liefermethode an. Softwarekäufer berücksichtigen Gesamtbetriebskosten, einfache Handhabung und Flexibilität bei ihrer Kaufentscheidung. ISVs müssen sich auf diesen Wandel vorbereiten. Dieses Dokument erkläutert die Vorteile, die aus Änderungen am ISV-Business Modell (die Stellung im Wettbewerb) und am Betriebsmodell (die Ausführung auf dem Geschäftsmodell) herrühren, sowie die Vorschläge zur Vorbereitung auf eine SaaS-Umstellung. Als Grundlage dienen die Erfahrungen von 20 ISVs, die von einem traditionellen Softwarelizenzierungs- und Bereitstellungsmodell erfolgreich auf SaaS umgestellt haben.
A recent Argyle survey found that nearly 60% of marketing organizations currently use some form of Account-Based Marketing (ABM), while 28% plan to use it in the near future. This shows the rising importance of ABM in the marketing mix. However, ABM does have its challenges. Almost 30% of the same respondents claimed that maintaining personalized, but consistent interactions with prospects was the most prominent challenge in ABM.

In a new study by Forbes Insights and sponsored by Oracle Marketing Cloud, 60% of brand and agency executives say their roles and responsibilities have changed significantly over the past two years. As a result, both groups are reengineering their internal organizations and forging new ways of working with their respective agency or brand counterparts. At the same time, the research found that technology is ingrained in marketing operations and, perhaps most significantly of all, agency and brand stakeholders are challenging themselves to analyze and apply consumer data in more sophisticated ways. Some are even hiring data scientists and others outside of the traditional marketing discipline to help in these efforts.

When we set out to conduct this study, we thought there would be quite marked differences between needs and expectations of employees from different countries and generations. In the end, we found that to be untrue."
Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services conducted a study across five countries comparing Millennials and non-Millennials in the workplace and found that the top five expectations of each group were exactly the same:
Security and protection for their future, health and family
Manage own time/work-life balance
Monetary recognition for personal contribution
Career development, regular and ongoing feedback
Personal development inside as well as outside of the workplace

Many new regulations are spurring banks to rethink how data from across the enterprise flows into the aggregated risk and capital reports required by regulatory agencies. Data must be complete, correct and consistent to maintain confidence in risk reports, capital reports and analytical analyses. At the same time, banks need ways to monetize, grant access to and generate insight from data.
To keep pace with regulatory changes, many banks will need to reapportion their budgets to support the development of new systems and processes. Regulators continually indicate that the banks must be able to provide, secure and deliver high-quality information that is consistent and mature.
In today’s digital economy, consumer products (CP) companies face pressures from all sides. Consumers wield great power based on easy access to information about products, pricing, and availability. The barriers of entry for new players with the “next big product idea” are lower than ever. At the same time, channel partners, from big retailers to Amazon, are expanding their own private-label businesses. Added to all that, tremendous volatility persists in the basic costs of doing business, from raw materials, to labor, to shipping, and beyond.
Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) businesses can receive through the deployment of Office 365. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks
associated with an Office 365 implementation, we interviewed four existing customers and surveyed 72 midsized organizations (with 150 to 2,000 users) about the use of Microsoft business products the SaaS platform, including Office Professional Plus, Exchange, Skype for Business (formerly Lync), SharePoint, Yammer, and OneDrive.
Our research found that a sample composite organization (which switched from an on-premises 2010 version solution to Office 365) had total present value benefits of $3.4 million versus total present value costs of $1.3 million, resulting in a net present value (NPV) of $2.1 million.
Today’s growing businesses face a tough challenge. They need to provide the same affordable, always-on mobile services that more established businesses offer, but without the economic support enterprises can fall back on. That means IT professionals are onstantly looking for creative ways to do more with less: managing teams, stretching budgets, and making the most of infrastructure and applications. To meet the needs of their organisations within those constraints, they’re turning to the cloud.
Cyberbreaches aren’t just in the news—they are the news. Yet headlines rarely mention the No. 1 source of those breaches: weak or stolen passwords. Whether they involve malware, hacking, phishing, or social engineering, the vast majority of breaches begin with account compromise and credential theft, followed by dormant lateral network movement and data exfiltration. In fact, weak or stolen passwords account for a staggering 81% of breaches, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report.
Not surprisingly, a new Okta-sponsored IDG survey finds that identity access management (IAM) is a top priority for nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT and security leaders. Yet the same survey uncovers widespread concern that their current IAM implementations are falling short. Just one worrisome example: Fewer than one-third (30%) of respondents report a good or better ability to detect a compromise of credentials.
The following report explores the gap between respondents’ aspiratio
Traditional web applications pre-date modern standards like SAML and OpenIDConnect, so they often use legacy authentication methods to grant end users access. Historically, providing Single Sign-On and centralized access management for end users across these legacy applications required a Web Access Management, or WAM, product. These on-premises software tools could be expensive to maintain and complex to deploy. Now, modern identity providers like Okta in conjunction with best-of-breed network management technologies offer a better way. This white paper describes how web applications that lack modern standard support can be integrated into a cloud-based Identity-as-a-service architecture.
